. the new militancy of 1963 changed america and inspired the world. but the promise -- the promise of democracy has not been made real for all of us. the promise is not real for people who work hard and play by the rules every single day, struggling to pay their bills. the promise is not real for retirees who work hard all their lives but don't know how they will make it day to day. the promise is not real for students who graduate under so much debt they wonder if they will ever climb out of it. and the promise is not real for all of us if it is not real for all of us it is not real for any of us. so we are here to replenish our spirit, restore our faith, and renew our activism. today we march for a nation where workers have decent pay, good benefits and rights on a job that no one can steal. today we march for a nation where the golden years of retirement are spent in peace, not in poverty. today we march for a nation where our children, no matter what they look like, where they live, or what they wear, can walk our streets in freedom and not in fear. today we march for a nation

the chemical use in syria is slanted to one. america has concluded that facade has artie use chemical weapons. do we already have any evidence? we have concluded that assad used it. what is the evidence? i would like to know. host: what is the latest? guest: we do not have evidence that was standup. we we have video of people testifying to reporters, locally on the ground, footage that suggests pretty seriously that missiles landed in a couple of towns. it is a great question. i applaud the viewer for bringing it up. this is something the obama administration will want to strategically hide behind. we have had a time in the united states of about six or seven years of a very militarized foreign-policy where we responded to these threats around the world and even going back to the former u.s. lobby where we responded with military strikes. there is a knee-jerk sense that we have to respond with a military strike. the obama administration's mantra has been we are going to be the administration that does not do that. that is what is playing out here. this slow resistance to jumping to conclusion

. why the higher alert in america? >> because this threat was so specific as to how in or miss it was going to be. enormous it was going to be. the assumption is that it is probably most likely to happen in the middle east, at or about one of the embassies, but there is no guarantee of that. it could be europe, the united eight, a series of combined attacks. it could be -- the united states, a series of combined attacks. it could be like the liquid explosive -- where there were going to be a series of attacks carried out almost simultaneously. the administration has tried to, first with the embassies, then with the global travel advisory, and also readying state and local governments -- leading state and local governments know the nature of this threat oh that -- so that we can be on guard. we are stronger than we were -- al qaeda is stronger than it was on 9/11. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is probably the most deadly. >> ron paul also talked about the u.s. embassy closings before the young americans for liberty conference. he is a former representative and was a 2012 res
